A deathbed confession and a long-hidden conspiracy are at the heart of a riveting historical mystery centered on the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
In March 1900, as former Congressman John Bingham of Ohio lies dying, he begins to tell a strange tale to his physician, Dr. Jamie Fraser. Bingham famously prosecuted eight members of John Wilkes Booth’s plot to kill Lincoln. But during the 1865 trial, conspirator Mary Surratt divulged a secret so explosive it could shatter the republic.
Though Bingham takes the secret to his grave, Fraser cannot let go of the mystery. Bored with small-town medical practice, he begins to investigate, securing an unlikely ally in Speed Cook, a black, college-educated professional ballplayer and would-be newspaper publisher. Cook is fascinated by Fraser’s inquiry and, like Fraser, thinks the accepted version of Lincoln’s assassination rings false. Was Booth truly the mastermind or were other, more powerful forces pulling the strings?

In desperation, the staff, led by the witty and resourceful butler, Rainbird, sets out to find a “good woman” who can calm the lord’s boisterous spirit and save his black soul. Their search ends with the discovery of Miss Esther Jones of Berkely Square, a prim and righteous woman who seems the perfect reformer. But complications lie ahead as the servants’ ingenious scheme creates warmhearted chaos both above and below the stairs at 67 Clarges Street, and no one, not even Miss Jones herself, is prepared for the transformation that ultimately takes place.
Actor Jamie Lee Curtis and winsome illustrator Laura Cornell continue their successful collaboration (Today I Feel Silly, When I Was Little, et al.) with this paean to poise and self-assurance, I’m Gonna Like Me.The duo sets out to “let off a little self-esteem” by following a seriously self-actualized (and gratifyingly quirky) boy and girl throughout their day on alternating pages. The kids take turns carrying the lines, often switching off midsentence, to describe exactly how and why “I’m gonna like me.” (Girl: “I’m gonna like me / when I’m called on to stand. / I know all my letters / like the back of my hand.” Boy: “I’m gonna like me / when my answer is wrong, / like thinking my ruler / was ten inches long.”) The call and response continues through the action-packed day, as the kids get up, go to school, have lunch, go to a birthday party, etc., until they finally get tucked in–so no opportunity for building self-esteem gets overlooked.

Then Martha is sent by Jackser to a man he knows in exchange for the price of a few cigarettes. She is nine. She is filthy, lice-ridden, outcast.

Martha treasures the time alone with her mother, but amazingly Ma pines for Jackser and they eventually return to Dublin and the other children.
In All Souls, Michael Patrick MacDonald told the story of the loss of four of his siblings to the violence, poverty, and gangsterism of Irish South Boston. In Easter Rising he tells the story of how he got out.

It is this reluctant journey “home” that offers MacDonald a chance at reconciliation — with his heritage, his neighborhood, and his family — and a way forward.
